strategy, repeal obama care. case in point, before the president concluded his remarks house speaker john boehner on the floor of the lower chamber railing against the nation's health care law mostly because that's the only thing he's allowed to talk about these days. >> delay the individual mandate, allow the american people to keep the health care plans that they would like. or scrap the health care law wreaking havoc on our economy. >> while jop seems content to bang the gong on obama care without any concern about the rest of the economy, the add manage is busy with the rest of the orchestra. if, as "the wall street journal" posits the president is winning hearts and minds doing his best elizabeth warren interpretation then he's not done yet. this morning president obama announce add new plan to triple the federal government's use of renewable energy by 20% by the year 2020. as one anonymous official told "new york times" every day there will be something coming out of the white house. that sounds so sort of pllike foreboding. we hope it's something good. you see in the script i said

months. >> robert, i think the big picture question is does the white house learn anything or do anything tangible in response. ron fournier calling in his own way the sensational title of his team is "president obama needs to fires himself. not literally, of course but practically he needs to shake up his team. you have said wns these problems are fixed there will be staffing changes. do you still think that's true and do you think it's as dramatic as fournier suggests. >> i don't think it should be as dramatic as the president firing himself. >> that would be unconstitutional. >> it will be inexplicable if somebody involved in the creation of the website doesn't get fired or a group of people don't get fired. again, if you look at that "new york times" story from this weekend, when folks at hhs are looking at the white house and dennis mcdonaccdonough's white calendar and laughing, micro managing, lets be clear, one thing the white house didn't do on this, they didn't micro manage beaurocracy enough. if we get through the end of the enrollment period -- i said this first on your show, a

of sanctions this week despite repeated protestations from the white house that doing so would scuttle the deal with iran. on saturday president obama said fresh sanctions might make sense if long-term deal falls through but not before that. if at the end of six months we can't make a deal, we're no worse off. in fact, we have greater leverage with the international community to continue to apply sanctions and strengthen them. >> over in iran, president rouhani harolding the deal telling parliament the expectation of sanctions relief had already boosted his country's economy. the $7 billion in relief amounts to less than one month of iranian oil production and 7% of the $100 billion in frozen iranian assets that remain overseas. still any respite is welcome in an economy with 12% unemployment and 40% inflation. on sunday for the first time inspectors from the u.n.'s nuclear watchdog toured the heavy water reactor at iraq. a sign that while there's plenty of scepticism some progress was already under way. robert, the president towed a careful line here. i thought his remarks were interesting. it

offensive play, and i mean that in terms of offense/defense, we've seen from the white house in a long time. and for those of us who paid close attention two years ago, it's very much an echo of president obama's major vision for the country, is it not? >> no question about it. it's been his vision really throughout the time he's been in public life. i remember interviewing president obama about income inequality in the fall of 2007. what he was doing in this speech is making a broad argument for government action across the board, not just on things like the minimum wage, but also domestic investments and infrastructure and education, job training. also his health care law. he's always seen the aforfordab care act as one element of an agenda to give a foundation of stability and security economically under people as they try to get into the middle class. he was reiterating that argument today. as you said, the shift to a more offensive argument shows how key it was to get that website working by the december 1st deadline because that is something that allows the administration to shift and
